Brooklyn Oyster Riot, an original New York Oyster Week Production,  and presented by W&T Seafood will create an unprecedented opportunity for guests to meet, mingle with and learn from oyster farmers in a fun and immersive oyster experience. The event will showcase some of the finest oysters in the world, as well as the stories of those who grow and distribute them. Come meet your oyster farmers and ask questions as they hand you an oyster carefully cultivated from seed to half-shell!  All oyster shells from the event will be recycled and donated to the Billion Oyster Project and New York Harbor School.
